Foot and Ankle fractures Q & A
What causes foot and ankle fractures?
Traumatic fractures are caused by abnormal forces on normal bone.
This may include:
- Twisting the foot/ankle
- Motor vehicle accident
- Sports injuries
What are my treatment options?
Fractures are deemed either stable or unstable, therefore this will determine the treatment options. As a general rule, stable fractures can be treated conservatively, and unstable fractures require surgical fixation to provide stability.
Nonsurgical options include:
- Fracture shoe
- CAM boot
Surgical options include:
- Open reduction and internal fixation
- Percutaneous techniques
What is my recovery process like?
The recovery process typically depends on the injury type and treatment plan. At EFA, our goal is to enhance your recovery with early and safe mobilization.
